Program Educational Objectives

After graduation and engaging in the profession of Computer Engineering for a few years, our graduates will have:

  • become a part of California’s high technology workforce, and made significant contributions to Computer Engineering through the research, design and development of a wide range of embedded systems and system-on-chip applications.
  • helped further the state’s economic growth by developing innovative ideas, and translating them into commercial products that benefit society.
  • functioned effectively as team members and/or leaders in multidisciplinary and multicultural environments.
  • recognized the societal and global context of their work and understood professional and ethical responsibilities.
  • continued the pursuit of lifelong learning through such activities as graduate school, distance education, professional training and membership in professional societies and been able to adapt to new engineering tools.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics. (SLO1)
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors. (SLO2)
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences. (SLO3)
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts. (SLO4)
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives. (SLO5)
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions. (SLO6)
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning. (SLO7)
